||An original screenplay
||A boy is given a magic cinema ticket which transports him into an action adventure starring Arnie as Jack Slater. But the villain finds the half ticket and makes his way to the real world, where he thinks that if he can kill the real actor he will overcome the screen hero..
||Lots of shooting, car chases and explosions mainly in the film scenes as opposed to the “real life” scenes.
||I have spent a bit of time reading about this movie, and it was a complete failure. This may be because everyone seems to be trying too hard. The Sylvester Stallone spoof “Demolition Man” was released the same year and was, in my view, a success – more humerous, more violent and more sexy!
